Free Animal Bedding

Due to similar content, The Frugal Homestead blog has been merged with Farming in My Fifties. This post can now be found here:


  1. I just found a small home paper shredder at our local thrift store. I had just added it to my "want" list so I was very excited. It had a price of $8 on it and I checked and it worked. Then, I bought a pair of shoes, a knife, two sweaters for hubby to wear to work, and a scent pot and got it all for $10. Woo hoo!

    I plan to shred my junk mail for nest material and chick bedding, maybe eventually the bedding for the whole chicken house. Then it will go into the compost pile.

  2. Hey, take me with you next time you go to the thrift store:) What a lot of good stuff for $10. Thanks for the tip on the paper shredder. I hadn't thought of having one myself. With my own shredder I could eliminate the paper recycling bin and have bedding. I will follow your lead and haunt my local thrift stores for one. Thanks!
